You all know that I love to workout while traveling. While I like to take advantage of getting out and exploring the surroundings as much as possible, I also like to prepare some workouts to keep me on track. Knowing I can get a full body workout with my Resistance Band, they are always in my travel bag.
I came up with this Do anywhere resistance band workout to take with me but it’s perfect to do anywhere, anytime. Resistance bands add resistance your exercises the same way weights would, assisting you in strengthening your muscles and getting a killer workout. They are portable, inexpensive and come in a variety of resistance levels.
Do Anywhere Resistance Band Workout
Steps outs: With a figure 8 resistance band on each ankle, step out the side while transferring your weight with you. Knees stay slightly bent. Punch out your hands forward with or without a light weight. No weights no problem-use a water bottle in each hand. Repeat 15x on each side.
Butt kicks: Keep the resistance band on your ankles and alternate kicking your heels back towards your rear end. Repeat 15x on each side.
Triceps kickbacks: with long resistance band, in a staggered stance with one foot on top of the band. Engage your triceps and pull your arms back. Keep arms engaged on forward and backward movement. Repeat 12x
Step one or two feet onto your resistance band and alternate bicep curls. Control the upward and downward motion to keep arms engaged the entire movement. Repeat 15x on each side.
Stand on your resistance band and row both arms back in a slow and controlled motion while in a half squat. Repeat 15x.
Glute bridges: A staple in any lower body workout, the glute bridge gets an extra challenge by adding your resistance band. Repeat 15x.
Your squats get an extra challenge by adding your resistance band repeat 15x
Repeat entire circuit and finish up with your favorite ab moves for a quick and efficient Do Anywhere Resistance Band workout. Entire set should take about 30 minutes to complete. Of course the possibilities are endless with resistance bands and these are a few of my favorites.
